About this Cook
I was born in Calabria, Italy and was raised in Frankfurt, Germany. I have two children Patricia (30) & Christopher (24), two grandchildren (my daughter's children) Sydnee (girl) 10 & Aidyn (boy) 7. I love to cook for my family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
Traditional Italian & German meals. I also love to bake bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When my children and their family come to visit they always wont me to bake my HM pizza and baked ziti.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I cooked a Thanksgiving meal by myself, that was quite an accomplishment for me, do that we don't have Thanksgiving in Italy or Germany.

Classic Tiramisu
The first time I made this Tiramisu I used the accect recepi. It was way to strong for us. The second time I made it I changet it up a bit. I used 1 cup of very strong coffee and 3 Tablespoons of coffee flavored liqueur mixet together. I cooled the coffe mixture in the fridge wile I mixed the othed ingrediants. The flavor was great and we were able to enjoy it better.Also it's much better if you make it the a day before you serve it to your guests. The flavor is much better the next day.
